    Understanding the Telerik Reporting WCF Service

    After working a bit with the Silverlight Report Viewer for Telerik Reporting, it seemed only natural to write a quick post to explain how exactly the Reporting WCF Service (located here in the help file) works and how to quickly and easily get started with it. To start with, why do we need a WCF service for Telerik Reporting?  The answer is that we added a Silverlight Report viewer not too long ago, and in order to get information to a Silverlight client application you need to either use a javascript bridge through the webpage hosting the XAP, which is a slightly clunky...

    Programmatic Initialization of Report Parameter Values in Telerik Reporting Silverlight Viewer

    Usually one may control the report appearance and the data it displays through report parameters.
